Politics Lesson: Personal Beliefs != Policy Decisions

I can tell already that Santorum’s Iowa momentum will renew focus on his positions with respect to gay marriage and abortion and that media types will try to disqualify him on those grounds…but this piece in the National Review describes the real legislator you’d get in the White House with Santorum: Link

Rational, cooperative, principled and polite – Santorum is the consummate professional – a happy warrior a la Reagan who will say what he really believes (and this sometimes earns him a bad reputation as being intransigent) but will work for the best possible compromise, rather than holding the process hostage as some in the Tea Party would rather do.

Make of that what you will…I rather like Santorum on those grounds.
